I hope this finds you well and healthy and happy.
In this newsletter, we’ll focus on some truly great people who’ve been important on the magical scene since the 1940s: Steffi & Kenneth Grant.
Steffi Grant: Carfax Monographs (pictured above)
A litograph based on Steffi Grant's image from her and husband Kenneth Grant's classic book The Carfax Monographs. Steffi Grant (1923-2019) was a unique British artist who captured the eternal mysteries together with her husband Kenneth (1924-2011). Their work within the "Typhonian" OTO, and also with promoting the creative sorcery and legacy of fellow British artist Austin Osman Spare, is an invaluable cornerstone of contemporary Western occultism.
This is the only authorized print by Steffi Grant that has ever been produced. This litograph was printed in Sweden during 2013, and then signed and numbered in London by the artist.
Sheet size 28 x 42 cm. Printed on high quality, archival art paper stock. Signed and numbered in recto by the artist. Limited edition of 31 copies. Sent by registered (trackable) mail.
We also have some of Kenneth Grant’s best books in our rare books section, and if you haven’t already read these, you really should:
Outside the Circles of Time
The fifth volume of Grant’s three “Typhonian Trilogies.” “This book explores the roots and branches of Grant’s Thelemic ideas, from Blavatsky, Crowley’s Book of the Law, Lovecraft’s Necronomicon to the work of Andahadna, contemporary priestess of Maat, the goddess of the Dark Aeon that, even now, spins closer to our time and space.”
Frederick Muller, 1980. First Edition. 320 pages. Illustrated. A very fine copy, w jacket in Fine (edge- and spine-wear, some staining), and with normal yellowing of the pages. Sent by registered (trackable) mail.
Cults of the Shadow
The third volume of Grant’s three “Typhonian Trilogies.” “Cults of the Shadow explores obscure aspects of occultism that have been frequently, and mistakenly, associated with the negative and sensational phenomena of so-called ‘black magick’.”
Skoob Books, 1994. 246 pages. Illustrated. Near Mint, with minor jacket-wear, and with normal yellowing of the pages. Sent by registered (trackable) mail.
The seventh volume of Grant’s three “Typhonian Trilogies.” “The earlier themes of Grant’s series of trilogies are here related, intensified and developed. The unearthly provenance of such disturbing messages as The Necronomicon is reaffirmed, leading to a cognate treatment of Crowley’s reception of The Book of the Law and a re-interpretation of that book’s implications in the light of the Typhonian Tradition.”
Skoob Books, 1994. First Edition. 266 pages. Illustrated. Near Mint, with minor jacket-wear, and with normal yellowing of the pages. Sent by registered (trackable) mail.
